The Process

After contacting Home Assistants For Seniors, Jo or Felicity will arrange a time to visit you and your elderly family member.  The Managers will discuss your needs and then together put a tailored plan in place to enable your loved one to live independently in their home.  The tasks are listed so expectations are clear.

A home care Assistant is carefully matched to the client so a rapport will be established.  The Assistant is then  introduced and orientated to their new position. The position may be 2 hours per week or 24 hours everyday.  Assistants work the days and hours most suited  to you, the client, providing the support that is required. The plan can be modified as the client's needs change so they can “age in their home”.   

 

Testimonials

I can’t speak highly enough about the work that Jo and Felicity and their “care givers” are doing. Home Assistants for Seniors professionalism and the quality of their “care givers” is exceptional and my brother, sister and I (and our mother), literally, could not contemplate being without them.

Jo Steel and Felicity Wallis have been supervising and assisting with the care of my mother for the past two years.  My siblings and I all live outside Christchurch. My mother (85 years old) is in the early stages of dementia.  The work of Jo and Felicity and their company, Home Assistants for Seniors, has been essential in allowing our mother to continue to live a moderately independent life. This has provided us with the peace of mind, that Mum is being well cared for and has an appropriate level of companionship. 

I would certainly recommend them to others seeking to ensure their ageing parents (or relatives) have a safe and secure social structure within which they can live, while retaining an appropriate degree of independence and autonomy.
